NdNs in the Black Mind: Possibilities, Tensions, & Why We Gon Be Alright Kyle Mays, University of California, Los Angeles
Comment: Courtney R. Baker, Occidental College
This panel focuses on rethinking the shared conditions of possibility for Indigenous and Black theorizing, analysis and politics. Panels examine a number of key questions, including: How has racialization been shaped by or exceeded the logics of colonial rule in ways that might complicate conventional understandings ofdifference, colonialism, and sovereignty? How might theorizing Indigeneity and Blackness require addressing differential systems of value more expansively or beyond racial binaries? How have anti-Indigenous and anti-Black racisms been co-constitutive and/or situated in opposition to one another? What relationship or genealogical entanglements are evident in Native and Black conceptions of and struggles for self-determination and for freedom?
